Kelley Blue Book

Again, auto experts at TheCarConnection.com note a good selection of standard and optional equipment for the 2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid.

The Mercury Mariner Hybrid 2008 reviewer at Jalopnik expresses either delight or sarcasm, depending on one's interpretation: "the [Mercury Mariner] Hybrid system is basically one big toy and with the navigation screen you get to watch as power is routed between the engine, motor and wheels. There's also a full 110v electrical output for keeping your iPod charged."

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes "a long list of standard equipment" for the base Mercury Mariner Hybrid 2008 trim that includes "automatic climate control, remote locking, 16-inch alloy wheels, V6 engine and leather upholstery."

According to Kelley Blue Book, 2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid options "vary by trim but include an Audiophile 320-watt sound system with DVD-based navigation, a six-disc in-dash CD player, moonroof, premium leather seating, 17-inch wheels, roof rack with crossbars, a lockable wet storage compartment, heated front seats, integrated side steps and a full-size spare." The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel adds that their Mercury Mariner Hybrid included "a navigation system, Sirius satellite radio, heated mirrors and front seats, roof rack crossbars and a cargo cover." These Mercury Mariner Hybrid 2008 options add up quickly; all of them "brought the suggested delivered price up to $29,720."

The Mariner Hybrid’s options list does not include Ford’s SYNC entertainment controller and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system. Those features are expected in the 2009 model year.

Conclusion

The 2008 Mercury Mariner has a wide range of standard features and some luxurious options to make it feel plusher.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
